Body Composition Assessment


Body composition refers to the percentage of body mass that is comprised of fat and fat-free mass. A body composition assessment provides information beyond just your weight on the scale. This test will estimate the proportion of fat-free mass (bone and muscle) to fat mass in your body. The participant will be able to use this information to determine an optimal amount of fat loss while maximizing lean tissue. Body composition measurements are considered one of the best indicators of overall health, in conjunction with other measures. In the athletic arena, body composition may be one of the more important measures of modifiable outcomes that can be directly related to improved sport performance.
